â€œI never cared about this ship...I justâ€¦wanted to find myself. I had to. Something deep in my brain - deep in my very soul - clawed at me, struggling to make sense of everything. But the sad truth is that it never could. I never could. I still canâ€™t remember who I am.â€
Hello, prospective crew member! Welcome to Shakhter-One, the first space mining ship to gather resources from the atmosphere of the planet Jupiter! Shakhter-One provides mass quantities of supplies to a resource-starved Earth. Thanks to Shakhter-One, we no longer have to depend on coal or oil! Still not sold on making Shakhter-One your new home?
â€œI donâ€™t even know if this has happened before. Me, here, telling this same, exact story. â€¦Surely not. I would remember thatâ€¦ Right?â€
Shakhter-One offers a fresh start among the stars! On Shakhter-One, everybody is important! Everybody is employed! All children have an equal start! Weâ€™re confident youâ€™ll see that Shakhter-One is the perfect place to begin your familyâ€™s future!
â€œThe only thing that I can truly be sure of is the constant, pervading feeling I have deep inside. Iâ€™m empty. Iâ€™m hollow.â€
In â€œHollow,â€ you are one of the pilots that transports precious resource cargo from the mining ship Shakhter-One down to Earth. One day you wake up in an emergency capsule drifting near the facility. You donâ€™t remember who you are, or how you got out thereâ€¦ All you can remember is an autopilot docking code for capsule dock NR 6.
When you dock with Shakhter-One, it is clear that something has gone horribly wrong. The crew is missing and the entire facility is dealing with catastrophic power issues. As you start to uncover the shipâ€™s terrifying secrets, Shakhter-One threatens to take your identity, your sanity, and - ultimately - your life.
The worst evil is the one that knows us better than we know ourselves. The worst nightmare is the one borne in our past, emotions, fears, and pain.
